Craigslist often has a number of inexpensive 3 spds. that are perfectly fine though they may look
like something no one would steal. I take that as a plus. Even if something should happen to one,...

I've done this a number of times using a dremel with a conical diamond bit to chamfer the edges.

That looks like a great trail. Judging from the winding river gradient, it might not be too hard
on geezers like me. Are those the original wheels on the Fuji?

I think think 2 sports can be completely symbiotic; ride your mtn. bike to places where the hatch
is happening. Wading back into the willows in search of brookies is my 2nd favorite sport.

Everyone's needs are as different as their bodies. That said, I've discovered I really don't

It likely stripped when over tightened. One needs to be 'very' cautious when pulling

Not so sure I agree. It does take a feel for it to ride friction. My beef with my index bike is that cable

I've seen that frame on bikes with assorted names & nationalities. My guess is Taiwanese
for the western market. They often used Anglicized names.
